Recent Times

For some years now these cars have developed a growing following, Initially it was simply that if you wanted a more competition oriented Porsche these cars delivered an awful lot for the money. As time has progressed that has become truer than ever – the later 996 and 997 GT3’s and GT3 RS’s don’t offer that much of a performance edge and need a lot more specialist attention. The criticism that the 964RS was too hard for the road is no longer seen as an issue – other cars with equally hard (or harder) suspension setup’s have come along. Above all they’re seen as perhaps the last iteration of the classic 911 shape – ok, the 993 RS is the last of the aircooled cars but these are rarer than the 964 and the shape has begun to mutate to the later longer and larger one of the 996. Perhaps the ultimate test, these cars are now the subject of replicas and imitations!
